epistle
Jer. 1:4-10
In diebus illis: Factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens: Priusquam te formatrem un utero, novi te: et antequam exires de vulva, sanctificavi te, et prophetam in gentibus dedi te. Eixi: A, a, a, Domine, Deus: ecce nescio loqui qui puer ego sum. Et dixit Dominus ad me: Noli dicere Puer sum: quoniam ad omnia quae mittam te, ibis: et universa, quaecumque mandavero tibi, loqueris. Ne timeas a facie eorum: quia tecum ego sum, ut eruam te, dicit Dominus. Et misit Dominus manum suam, et tetigit os meum: et dixit Dominus ad me: Ecce dedi verba mea in ore tuo: ecce constitui te hodie super gentes, et super regna, ut evellas, et destruas, et disperdas, et dissipes, et aedifices, et plantes: dicit Fominus omnipotens.   In those days the word of the Lord came to me, saying: Before I formed thee in the bowels of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and made thee a prophet unto the nations. And I said: Ah, ah, ah, Lord God: behold, I cannot speak, for I am a child. And the Lord said to me: Say not: I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee: and whatsoever I shall command thee, thou shalt speak. Be not afraid at their presence: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. And the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth: and the Lord said to me: Behold I have given my words in thy mouth: Lo, I have set thee this day over the nations, and over the kingdoms, to root up, and pull down, and to waste, and to destroy, and to build, and to plant.

Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Joannes, Hic venit ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine, parare Domino plebem perfectam.   There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came to bear witness of the light, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people.
gospel
Lk. 1:5-17
Fuit in diebus Herodis, regis Judaeae, sacerdos quidam nomine Zacharias, de vice Abia, et uxor illius de filiabus Aaron, et nomen ejus Elisabet. Erant autem justi ambo ante Deum, incedentes in omnibus mandatis, et justificationibus Domini sine querela, er non erat illis filius, eo quod esset Elisabeth sterilis, et ambo processissent in diebus suis. Factum est autem, cum sacerdotio fungeretur in ordine vicis suae ante Deum, secundum consuetudinem sacerdotii, sorte exiit, ut incensum poneret, ingressus in templum Domini: et ormnis multiudo populi erat orans foris hora incensi. Apparuit autem illi Angelus somini stans a dextris altaris incensi. Et Zacharias turbatus est, videns, et timor irruit super eum. Ait autem ad illum Angels: Ne  timeas, Zacharia, quoniam exauita est deprecatio tua: et uxor tua Elisabeth pariet tibi filium, et vocabis nomen ejus Joannem: et erit gaudium tibi, et ecsultatio, et multi in nativitate ejus gaudebunt: erit enim magnus coram Domino: et vinum, et multi in nativitate ejus gaudebunt: erit enim magnus coram Domino: et vinum, et siceram non bibet, et Spiritu Sancto replebitur adhuc ex utero matis suae et multo filiorum Israel convertet ad Dominum Deum ipsorum: et ipse praecedt ante illum in spiritu, et virtute Eliae: ut convertate corda patrum in filios, et incredulos as prudentiam justorum parare Domino plebem perfectam. There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zachary, of the course of Abia; and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name Elizabeth. And they were both just before God, walking in all the commandments and justifications of the Lord without blame. And they had no son, for that Elizabeth was barren, and they both were well advanced in years. And it came to pass, when he executed the priestly function in the order of his course before God, According to the custom of the priestly office, it was his lot to offer incense, going into the temple of the Lord. And all the multitude of the people was praying without, at the hour of incense. And there appeared to him an angel of the Lord, standing on the right side of the alter of incense. And Zachary seeing him, was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said to him: Fear not, Zachary, for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John: And thou shalt have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice in his nativity. For he shall be great before the Lord; and shall drink no wine nor strong drink: and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. And he shall convert many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias; that he may turn the hearts of the fathers unto the children, and the incredulous to the wisdom of the just, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people.

Preface
The Common Preface
   Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem majestatem tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates. Coeli coelorumque Virtutes ac beata Seraphim socia exsultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces ut admitti jubeas, deprecamur supplici confessione dicentes:      It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks to Thee, holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God, through Christ our Lord: through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, Dominations worship, Powers stand in awe: the Heavens and the host of heaven with blessed Seraphim unite, exult and celebrate and we entreat that Thou wouldst bid our voices also to be heard with theirs, singing with lowly praise:
